Greek EasterMy brother Solos with baby Alexander & my boys and I over our Greek Easter weekend!

Sunday was a day of drinking fine wine and feasting as Greeks around the world and anyone following the Julian Orthodox calendar, celebrated Easter.

The sun shone all day in Leeds so the children delighted in splashing around in the paddling pool before dying some red eggs as tradition dictates (thank you Grenglish for posting the red dye you darling lady), in anticipation for the family gathering (including Godfather Andy) at one of my parents’ restaurants The Olive Tree in Rodley for a leisurely Easter lunch. Together we had red egg cracking fights (cooked eggs dyed in red food colouring), Papa G won, beating all other eggs to defend his title for another year) and even Alexander tried some mashed lamb! Bravo!Easter 2

…We returned home for a stroll in the last of the spring sunshine, daffodils (Greek) dancing to the evening breeze as we went. A perfect end to a beautiful day.

…Bank Holiday Monday was BBQ time (the after party remnants can be seen below) as we relished in highs of 20 and husband Peter, my brother Solos and friend Tim gallantly put up our fabulous new trampoline and enclosure kindly sent to us from Big Game Hunters/The Play Experts.

Do check out my post: Bouncy, Bouncy Fun…I absolutely adored bouncing on it and currently feel like a new woman post-endorphin highs of leaping into the clouds, reaching ever closer to that glorious sun! Then to top it all off, Alexander, aged 7 and a half months, said his first word: Daddy too!

What a wonderful Easter weekend!
